Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Dr Pepper Snapple Group stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Dr Pepper’s first-quarter 2018 earnings missed the Zacks Consensus Estimate while revenues beat the same. Earnings declined 3% but revenues grew 5.6% from the year-ago quarter. Revenues benefited from growth in sales volumes, favorable product and package mix, segment mix as well as foreign currency translation. The company’s first-quarter gross profit was up 1.1% from the prior-year quarter. Meanwhile, Dr. Pepper recently announced its acquisition agreement with the well-known coffee maker Keurig Green Mountain, Inc. The deal is scheduled to close in the second quarter of 2018. Notably, shares of the company have outperformed the industry in the past year. However, earnings estimates for 2018 have declined over the past 30 days, reflecting analysts’ concern on its prospects." (4/27/2018)
  • 2. Jefferies Financial Group Inc analysts commented, "DPS announced a surprise merger with Keurig Green Mountain, wherein shareholders will receive a $103.75 special dividend and a 13% stake in NewCo. Conf call left questions on strategic fit and ability to materially improve growth; however, importantly, the deal enhances KDP’s scale as a platform co. to further consolidate the global bevs industry. Using preliminary assumptions, we see fair value for DPS’s shares in the ~$120+ area (13-15x synergized EV/ EBITDA). DPS to merge with Keurig Green Mountain – adds scale to global beverage platform company: DPS announced a merger with Keurig Green Mountain (NC) to create a portfolio of cold and hot beverage brands, broaden scale and reach, and drive attractive growth opportunities. While the Keurig team seemingly brings greater capabilities in the on-line channel and the Keurig brands should leverage DPS’s strength in DSD, mgmt did not shed much light on how the combined portfolio will improve growth in either business; however, importantly, the deal enhances KDP’s scale as a platform co. to further consolidate the global beverages industry. Cost synergies of $600M by 2021 (~9% of DPS sales or ~5.5% of pro forma sales) will be a major source of value creation. Under the terms of the deal, DPS’s shareholders will receive $103.75 per share in a special cash dividend and retain 13% of the combined Keurig Dr Pepper (vs. 87% ownership for Keurig shareholders). The transaction is expected to close in the second quarter of 2018, subject to DPS shareholder approval and customary closing conditions." (1/29/2018)
